The Assignment: Choose a topic that interests you in any area that we have cover

The Assignment:
Choose a topic that interests you in any area that we have covered in class: including, but not limited to: Politics, Issues in the Media, Law, Morality, Science, and of course, ANY area of philosophy you find interesting. Make sure to focus on the issue that concerns you. Do not try to address ALL of the relevant points surrounding the abortion debate, for instance. Instead, narrow your topic to one of the central arguments, ideally, the most compelling argument you think you can make related to the issue. See sample argument below for a model. If you are having trouble coming up with a topic, or are unsure whether the issue you have chosen will work, please contact me as soon as possible to help you through it.
You must begin with the argument in logical standard form including all of the premises you deem needed to support your conclusion. The essay portion will follow in which you expand/defend further one of the most important premises in your argument. You will then offer, in brief, what you think might be the strongest (please avoid straw man fallacies) argument against your position. Then offer a brief rebuttal to that counter-argument. See below for a sample of this assignment.
I care not what you believe, only that you can support your claims. While you are making the finishing touches upon your argument, please scan thru the text and class notes to make sure you have not inadvertently used rhetorical devices or fallacious reasoning. Be sure your argument is clear and concise.
The entire assignment should be about 5-6 pages—I will allow for leeway for papers that go over 5 pages but not below 4. The standard form argument should be single-spaced, but the essay should be double spaced, Times New Roman 12pt font. For clarity for you and me please include the headings “essay”, “possible rebuttal” and “rebuttal to rebuttal”. See Writing Sample below.
Everyone′s paper must have the following structure:
1-Argument in Standard Logical Format
2-Essay portion—Argument expanding on your most central premise(s) (This is the most important element!)
3-Anticipated objection (strongest one you can think of)
4-Reply to rebuttal
